Research interests: Health and inequalities in ageing, method development for ageing research, mortality forecasting, cause of death, life expectancy trends, formal demography.
Marie-Pier is an Assistant Professor at the Interdisciplinary Centre on Population Dynamics (CPop) at the University of Southern Denmark. She is a demographer interested in the study of human mortality, longevity and ageing, with a particular interest in exploring new demographic methods to help understand and forecast changes in health and mortality in industrialised societies. Her research can be divided into three broad strands:
- i) mortality forecasting, including the development of new models;
- ii) lifespan differentials, with a focus on developing and applying decomposition methods;
- iii) changes in the causes of death structure.
